Effective Ways to Get Rid of Fleas in Your Home

Treat Your Pets
The first step in eliminating fleas from your home is to treat your pets with a flea control product that contains an insecticide such as permethrin or pyrethrin. These products will kill adult fleas on contact, and many contain ingredients that break down the protective coating on flea eggs so they can't hatch into larvae. Make sure you consult with your veterinarian before using any flea control products on your pet.

Treat Your Home
Once you have treated your pet for fleas, it's important to treat your home next. Vacuuming is one of the most effective ways to get rid of adult fleas and their eggs from carpets, furniture, and other surfaces. After vacuuming, empty the vacuum outside so that any remaining fleas don't end up back in your house. You should also use a pesticide spray containing permethrin or pyrethrin to kill any remaining adult or larvae that may be hiding in cracks or crevices around the house. Again, make sure you read all instructions carefully before using any pesticide products in your home.

Prevent Future Infestations
Once you've eliminated the current infestation of fleas from your home, it's important to take steps to prevent future infestations. Regular vacuuming is key since this will help remove any eggs that may have been laid by adult fleas before you treated them. You should also wash all bedding (including pet bedding) regularly with hot water and detergent since this will help kill any remaining eggs or larvae on fabrics around the house. Finally, keeping up with regular treatments for your pet will help ensure that new adult fleas don’t return to reinfest the house again!

Flea infestations can be difficult to eliminate once they become established in a home, so it’s important to take preventive measures as soon as possible. Treating both pets and homes with insecticides is essential for getting rid of existing infestations while regular vacuuming and washing can help keep future infestations at bay! With these tips under our belts we hope everyone feels confident about taking charge against pesky pests!
